After a long snowy cold winter I am so looking forward to Spring. I will bet I am not the only one……..
Spring is the season of new beginnings so in that spirit I have been teaching myself something new….I have become fascinated with Miniatures. Mostly mini food, maybe that’s because I have been on a Damn diet for the last 50 years. I am loving learning new techniques and putting them to use. My goal is to make so mini Gingerbread houses and maybe some miniature Christmas shadow boxes.
Here are some examples of my experiment’s so far.
This is my first cake..It is about 2 inches big. I am happy with it overall except the cake texture needs work; I have gotten better.
How about some gooey chocolate cake this one is about 1 inch [see the crumb is looking better].
So now I have made little cake slice charms, they make sweet earrings.
How about blueberry pies ..these are 1 inch . I made a couple into cute refrigerator magnets and turned the others into pendants.
I made the plate 3/4 of an inch so you can imagine how small the sugar cookies are.
and this is my last piece…I think the hat is sweet. So now I am off to work on some mini Christmas cookies
